X, which used to be called Twitter, now has a new plan called Premium Plus. This plan costs $16 each month, and it allows subscribers to pay extra money to make their replies more prominent.
This plan not only gives you the most significant boost for your replies but also takes away advertisements from your “For You” and “Following” feeds. These details are mentioned on a page that explains the features of the subscription.
X New Subscription Plans
Premium Plus is an expansion of the benefits that come with X’s regular Premium plan (formerly known as Twitter Blue). This standard Premium plan gives you a blue checkmark, the ability to edit your tweets, the option to make longer posts, upload longer videos, send encrypted direct messages, and more.
Apart from Premium Plus, X has introduced another option called “Basic” for $3 per month. But there’s a catch – this plan doesn’t allow you to pay to get verified, so you won’t get a checkmark. Subscribers to this plan will only get a minor enhancement for their replies. Additionally, it doesn’t include a reduction in ads or access to X’s media studio.
Both of these new plans can currently only be purchased on the web. If you buy the regular Premium subscription directly, it costs $8 per month. It’s worth noting that earlier this month, there was a report about X testing new paid membership levels.
After becoming the owner last year, Elon Musk has been looking for ways to make money from the platform. He even made users in New Zealand and the Philippines pay $1 per year to use X. Musk has also introduced several new features to X, such as livestreaming, video and audio calls, and he’s even thinking about adding banking services in the future.
X, formerly Twitter, introduced Premium Plus at $16/month, offering enhanced reply visibility and ad removal. It complements the Premium plan with features like a blue checkmark and more. A $3/month “Basic” option with limited perks is also available. Both can be bought online. Elon Musk aims to monetize X through these changes and potential future features, such as banking services.
